Concrete steps are being taken by the province by dedicating money to keep long term care residents out of ERs and hospitals, and in those homes.
South Centennial Manor in Iroquois Falls is getting its share of $2-million spread over the Northeast.
Announcing the money, Conservative MPP George Pirie says it will provide the best quality of life supported by safe, first-class service.
“We’re doing this so long term care residents everywhere can connect to the care they need, when and where they need it.”
The Iroquois Falls facility gets the biggest, says Pirie, “$558,334 to South Centennial in Iroquois Falls for the same type of services.”
…Specifically, equipment and staff training for bariatric care; palliative care; residents in wheelchairs or bedridden, and those who need extensive or total help.
Foyer des Pionniers in Hearst is getting $19,000 for a resident wandering system. It will increase protection for current residents and allow admitting others with increasingly complex needs.
The total money is going to 14 projects across the Northeast.
